Today my Nanny died. She had an amazing life, did so much good for so many people and was really ready to pass and leave all the physical ailments behind, but still, it is upsetting.
Tonight, after putting the baby down to bed I asked my husband if he wanted some chips. I’ve already had more than enough food today, but my grief was causing me to want to eat (and pretend it wasn’t me doing it by offering to get some for the hubby). Luckily he said he was full (a feeling I rarely feel). I ate an orange, drank a glass of water and made some tea. I was still feeling funky so I went on the rower for 20mins and then did a bunch of stretching. Soon, I’ll head to bed.
Why am I sharing this with you? Well, I know that today my portion sizes were too big (not 50%). And, I know a lot of that was self-comforting. But despite having a hard day personally and a funky day food-wise, I did not end up ending the day, splurging. YAY!

This week my inspiration to keep on The Program has mostly been based on momentum. Making healthy choices and resisting temptation really feels easier this week. It feels like when you are in the groove of your Program, no matter what that Program is, ease follows.
Perhaps it is that I’ve formed healthier habits. Perhaps it is because I am not letting myself get into situations that would lead to straying from my program. I haven’t allowed myself to get too overtired, too thirsty or too hungry and I’ve packed lunches when I am going to be away from home. If the prep work is done (groceries have been purchased, my menu is planned, and I have daily reminders to drink enough water and get enough sleep) then making the right decisions and taking the right actions is much easier. And, good decisions and actions, are what My Program is all about!
I hope this momentum continues; I definitely feel inspired!
What do you do when you (successfully) resist temptation? Any tricks you can pass on to me?
What inspires you to live a healthy lifestyle? What inspires you on your weight loss journey?
